Answer – Evolution of smugglers' tactics on the Central Mediterranean Route – E-002728/2017

It is not for the Council to comment on specific EEAS or Commission documents, nor on media reports.

The European Council and the Council have often underlined the importance of significantly reducing migratory flows along the Central Mediterranean route and breaking the business model of smugglers. These are also the two key objectives of the Malta Declaration of 3 February 2017.

Member States, EU institutions and EU agencies such as Frontex and Europol’s European Migrant Smuggling Centre pursue their efforts with a range of actions conducted, inter alia, as part of Operation Sophia and EUBAM Libya.
